According to the European Court of Human Rights, Hungarian authorities violated the European Convention during proceedings in the case of a woman from Gyöngyöspata who was severely threatened by a member of the Betyársereg (Army of Outlaws) group in spring 2011, when extremists were "patrolling" in the village.

The judgment is available here.
